Waffles in LA other than Roscoes?
Does anyone have recommnendations for where to find a great waffle in LA? I'm not interested in Roscoe's. I'm looking for the nice fluffy Belgian kind. Thanks!
I like the ones at Literati Cafe and Le Pain Quotidien.
LC's is probably what you're after: a big thick round waffle, crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.
LPQ is a little more "adult." smaller, misshapped, charred around the edges. I'm told this is more traditionally Belgian, but it's not something that was familiar to me. It did have more bready, yeasty flavor and texture than most Belgian waffles.
Both great, but LC will be more familiar to the diner-raised American.
I haven't been there but I've heard good things about The Griddle Cafe on Sunset. I onlyy like Belgian too.
Just had one at Toast (on Beverly) over the weekend that was really, really great.
Fluffy (check), Belgian (check). I think you will like it.
Los Angeles magazine once named Canter's as having the best waffles in LA. Because of that, I went there and tried them. This was a couple years ago, and apparently they weren't that memorable (but I'm also not a big waffle person), so I can't really tell you anything other than, I must have liked them at least minimally because I always remember when something's bad. I know this is of little help to you but thought you might want to know, maybe to add Canter's to your list of places to try.
